Artistic Adventures of the Soul “Renew” – A Retreat for Women

Spring is the perfect time to revisit and reignite the creative spirt that lives within us. Take a break from your daily life, get away and check-in to a beautiful, nourishing environment designed to renew your mind, heart, body and soul. This will be a time to explore what inspires us, clarify our spiritual connections and delve into painting from a prayerful point of view. “Renew” is about examining what creativity means at this juncture of our lives. What does God say about creativity? Why are we given these gifts? What have other women taught us along the way? Where are we to go from here?

These are some of the questions we will explore with Reverend Betty L. Proctor and artist Rachael McCampbell for a spring retreat focused on exploring the mysteries and blessings of the creative gifts we possess. For 3 nights and 4 days, delve into your spirituality through the painting process, journaling, nature walks and intimate circles with other creative and curious women. Betty Proctor, an accomplished speaker and a gifted leader, is the pastor at United Methodist Church of Leiper’s Fork, TN. Rachael McCampbell brings her 35 years experience as a professional artist to this retreat along with years of teaching art, writing and leading groups on annual painting trips to Europe and headlining painting workshops in the US.

Beersheba Springs, TN is a gorgeous spot on the Cumberland Plateau with distant views, waterfalls, beautiful hikes and cool fresh air that enlivens the soul. The historic Beersheba Springs Assembly, built in 1854, is the centerpiece of this small community. Each guest will have their own private room and bath plus 10 full meals and snacks while on this retreat. The group will meet for vespers outside and in the chapel, meet for circle gatherings, paint, go on silent walks, and join around a campfire at night to recap each day. There will be creative exploration, journaling, hiking, resting and lots of laughter and friendships made to last a lifetime.

Space is very limited, so if you are interested, contact Rachael soon. She is accepting $200 non-refundable deposits now to hold your place. To register and sign-up, contact Rachael McCampbell. Email:
